For Parents

For the Parents of Our Students

Your son or daughter has expressed interest in pursuing a career in the beauty industry and you, as a concerned parent, wish to ensure that their path to long-term success will be as smooth and free of avoidable pitfalls as possible. We applaud you for performing due diligence on behalf of your child and are here to answer your questions.

The International College of Beauty Arts and Sciences is a fully accredited technical school, whose goals are to thoroughly train each of our students in any and all facets of the beauty industry.

Our intensive, state-of-the-art programs are designed specifically to prepare our students for careers, not just jobs, and the first step in that direction begins with many hours of classroom instruction and hands-on training. In fact, the number of required hours of instruction is mandated by the individual states or countries administering the licensing exams. Our goal is to ensure that our graduates qualify to take those exams and to ultimately earn their licenses, all of which will lead them to an exciting and satisfying career.


The International College of Beauty Arts and Sciences will be delighted to meet with you, either on your own or with your son or daughter, and to give you a tour of our beautiful campus. Please call us toll-free at 800-272-1716 to schedule an appointment and arrange a meeting, at which time we will be happy to answer any questions you may have about our various programs.

Is the Beauty Industry a Good Investment for Your Child?

According to a study published in 2009 by U.S. News & World Report, cosmetology ranks among the Top 30 careers today, “scoring high in job satisfaction and employment outlook.”

Isn’t that exactly what you want for your child?

After all, the human race will always need hair care; women (and men) will always wish to improve their appearance through makeup and facial treatments; manicures and pedicures will always be thought of as indispensable by many people; and there will always be a need for the creative, people-oriented professionals who can provide those specialties.

If your child recognizes that the world of beauty offers an exciting choice for a career – especially one with proven longevity – you are the wise parent, indeed, to encourage his or her pursuit of excellence in that field of endeavor. When your child can proudly display a diploma from the renowned International College of Beauty Arts and Sciences next to his business license, you, too, will have something to beam about.

Here are just a few examples of the various opportunities that your son or daughter will encounter upon graduation from The International College of Beauty Arts and Sciences:

  • He might become part of the entertainment industry as a professional makeup artist or hairdresser and one day, might see his name in the credits of feature films or television shows.
  • She might become a sales rep within the industry, working for well-established companies or helping to build a new brand name from the ground up.
  • Here’s an opportunity you might not have thought of: Beauty experts are paid to travel and perform their services on cruise lines and at resorts around the world.
  • Many beauty professionals become instructors themselves, adding to their resumes and to their prestige.
  • With diligence, hard work and the desire to be independent, ownership of his own salon may be in his future.
